How Hiring Freethinkers Encourages Diversity of Thought

This is the ninth in a series of ten posts on hiring candidates with characteristics linked to high performance. Each post focuses on a single key candidate trait, why it matters and how recruiters can develop processes to correctly and fairly evaluate for it.

So far, we’ve covered the science of first impressions, hiring for personality versus character, how to hire committed candidates, how to find motivated candidates, how to hire collaborative individuals, how to hire passionate candidates, finding candidates with the right skillset for your role, and the value of growth minded candidates.

In Atlanta, some of our hiring challenges include attracting non-local talent, building diverse candidate pools, and discovering the “next big thing” in the world of sourcing tools.

TAG recently partnered with Entelo to bring together over 150 industry peers to talk about the state of hiring in the Atlanta market. What does it take to engage and hire a local candidate?
